Feeder: ‘We’re not a TikTok band, but I’m not bitter about it’ | Music | Entertainment

Feeder came out swinging, this month. The legendary British rock duo just released their 12th studio record, Black/Red - a double album - and their first since 2022.And what a record. With 18 songs at their disposal, Feeder has brought back some of the powerful and catchy riffs their fans know them for. But they explored some serene soundscapes in the more intricate, slower tracks.Although Black/Red arrives two years after Torpedo, Feeder hasn't simply churned out another album. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk, frontman Grant Nicholas explained this record has been in the works since before Torpedo even came out."Basically, some of the songs were actually written during lockdown," Grant explained.

We had this gig and it was like the first thing I ever played, and I was lead guitar player, John was rhythm, and I had a solo, and I totally f...

It was 54 years ago today when Paul McCartney put out a press release saying he was no longer working with The Beatles.Despite this, Macca claimed it was John Lennon who broke up the band in 1970.Speaking previously with BBC Radio 4, the 81-year-old said: “I’m not the person who instigated the split.“John walked into the room one day and said, ‘I’m leaving The Beatles’ and he said, ‘It’s quite thrilling, it’s like a divorce.’“And then we were there to pick up the pieces. I didn’t instigate the split.

According to The Times, he previously said: “Between 1966 and 1968, when I was hanging around them, it wa...
